Summaries for RIT1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RIT1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of a subfamily of Ras-related GTPases. The encoded protein is involved in regulating p38 MAPK-dependent signaling cascades related to cellular stress. This protein also cooperates with nerve growth factor to promote neuronal development and regeneration. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2012]

GeneCards Summary for RIT1 Gene

RIT1 (Ras-Like Without CAAX 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RIT1 include noonan syndrome 8 and noonan syndrome 1. Among its related pathways are Signaling by FGFR and Signaling by FGFR. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and calmodulin binding. An important paralog of this gene is RAP2B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RIT1 Gene

  • Plays a crucial role in coupling NGF stimulation to the activation of both EPHB2 and MAPK14 signaling pathways and in NGF-dependent neuronal differentiation. Involved in ELK1 transactivation through the Ras-MAPK signaling cascade that mediates a wide variety of cellular functions, including cell proliferation, survival, and differentiation.

    Protein attributes for RIT1 Gene

    Size:
    219 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    25145 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with MLLT4, the C-terminal domain of RALGDS and RLF, but not with RIN1 and PIK3CA. RLF binds exclusively to the active GTP-bound form. Strongly interacts with BRAF, but only weakly with RAF1. BARF and RAF1 association is dependent upon the GTP-bound state. Interacts with RGL3 (By similarity).
    Miscellaneous:
    • Shows rapid uncatalyzed guanine nucleotide dissociation rates, which are much faster than those of most Ras subfamily members
    • Stimulation of the NGF and EGF receptor signaling pathways results in rapid and prolonged activation

  • Noonan syndrome 8 (NS8) [MIM:615355]: A form of Noonan syndrome, a disease characterized by short stature, facial dysmorphic features such as hypertelorism, a downward eyeslant and low-set posteriorly rotated ears, and a high incidence of congenital heart defects and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Other features can include a short neck with webbing or redundancy of skin, deafness, motor delay, variable intellectual deficits, multiple skeletal defects, cryptorchidism, and bleeding diathesis. Individuals with Noonan syndrome are at risk of juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia, a myeloproliferative disorder characterized by excessive production of myelomonocytic cells. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23791108}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
